When the pot is dry, you'll want to embellish. We added ER's school picture, outlined in puffy paint, and some foam stickers. I also added rub-ons very carefully, it was hard to get them to stick over the glitter. Afterward, I smeared on a little more Mod Podge over the saying to keep it from lifting off.
Now it is time to make your ornament a "bell". Make a hanger as shown above. Double knot a short distance above your bell. This will help keep it from coming out of the hole at the top of the "bell", aka the clay pot's drainage hole. Push ribbon through up through hole and then knot again at the top to create a hanger. We added another bow, purely for a decorative touch.
Hanging on the tree the lights twinkle against the glitter. A gentle shake will make your Christmas Bell ornament jingle. Don't forget to write the year on the inside of the bell. We made one for our own tree, both Grandparents, and for our very special ornament exchange with Valerie from Frugal Family Fun Blog. She's got an awesome giveaway going on right now, go to Frugal Family Fun Blog to enter to win an iPad and an assortment of children’s books courtesy of Target!
